Residents will see Hwy. 249 take shape in Montgomery County this year—a long-awaited thoroughfare for Precinct 2 that could ease traffic congestion, provide economic development opportunities and afford drivers greater access to the region, Commissioner Charlie Riley said. “It’s very exciting for the folks over here in the southwest portion of Montgomery County,” Riley said. “It’s a road that is desperately needed and will do great things for this part of the county.” Crews are working in Harris, Montgomery and Grimes counties to extend Hwy. 249 from Tomball to Hwy.
When Tomball named Steven Vaughan as its citizen of the year, he was surprised to learn he had earned the honor. The Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce president Bruce Hillegeist said Vaughan was instrumental in forming the Tomball Economic Development Corp. back in 1994 and working to get it approved by voters. Vaughan also helped to house the TEDC along with the chamber of commerce, he said.
